Class C Toy Haulers

I'm in the market for a used class c toy hauler. I've noticed the Fun Movers are plentiful and affordable. I prefer a gas engine. I would love to hear from other owners. I would love to hear some pros and cons. I've noticed many models have a roll up garage door and no ramp. I prefer the drop down ramp /door that is typical of the towable toy haulers.
I have only owned class b units in the past. I prefer the smaller units for fuel economy. However being able to haul and securely store my motorcycles and kayaks is very appealing.

Fun Mover was a line of Class C and Super C from Four Winds Int'l.

After mergers, Four Winds became a big piece of what makes up Thor Motor Coach...along with Chateau, Damon, and Mandalay Luxury Coach. See:
https://thormotorcoach.com/company/

So the Outlaw Class A and C are the only current motorized Toy Haulers from this maker...and along with the Newmar Canyon Star 3921, the ONLY motorized Toy Haulers (except the super-rare Class 8 Truck conversions) I know of for sale, new.

Your post was moved from a thread about the Outlaw 29H, to improve visibility.

Best luck on our quest.

I show dogs and there are several dog show people who have purrchased the older Four Winds Fun Mover and put MANY miles on them.

Most years built on the E450 didnt have a slide option but many had a power ramp option.

The more current Version is the Thor Outlaw C body version. They offer a slide , jacks and ramp that doubles as a patio.

I've looked at the Outlaws with envy. They are far out of my budget. Which is why I'm looking for a Fun Mover. One issue is I'm in St. Louis MO. Most of the used Fun Movers are everywhere but MO. And they are sold before I can get time off work to veiw them. I am hoping to find one within the next six months. I would like to hear from other owners about chronic issues these units have, or things to look out for when test driving etc.

I considered a fun mover /toy hauler vs a regular motor home last year.. I too like to take my HD where ever I go.. I could not justify the reduction in living space ( the bedroom) .. So I opted for a jayco mh with a 12 ft enclosed trailer..

I contest the "reduction in living space" line of thinking for the garage in any Toy Hauler.

The garage in our Toy Hauler is an incredible multipurpose space that can be anything from formal bedroom, to craft room, to garden room (with the rear ramp/patio), to anything desired.

The standard master bedroom is the real waste of valuable floor space to us

Plus, the typical COW (condo on wheels) has no loft. We LOVE our loft for a clean, quiet sleeping space.
But lucky for us all, all these different RV's are available to us.

Safe travels

I was comparing a jayco Seneca toy hauler to the mh floor plan.. i to have the loft bed as well as the rear bedroom. I find using the enclosed trail as a garage works well. I found the size on the toy hauler garage very small. I like to take multiple toys with me depending on the event. I guess i just find hauling a trailer more convenient... the Seneca with a duramax doesn't even notice it..

I'm not sure where you live that the FunMovers are plentiful, but I'm jealous!! I hunted high and low for mine. I bought a used 2000 31 footer. I too wanted the rear ramp, but found its actually a lift, and only available on the 27 footer, from what I found. It's a weight issue I believe. I was going to get a 27, but found out by going 27 over 31 you lose the couch
